November 4th, 2011 3:28pm EDT
Andy Samberg
Funnyman Andy Samberg is facing allegations of copyright infringement over two songs he performed with Rihanna and Seth Rogen on hit comedy show Saturday Night Live.

Musicians Aleric Banks, aka Rick Tha Ruler, and Monique Hines claim they composed the music Samberg and his The Lonely Island band mates used on their Rihanna collaboration Shy Ronnie and the Rogen-assisted Like a Boss.

The duo accuses Samberg of taking the tunes and putting his own comedic lyrics to them for musical skits on SNL.

The digital shorts, which aired in 2009, have since become big hits on YouTube.com - Like a ...

Seth Rogen
Actor Seth Rogen has landed a raunchy role in his wife Lauren Miller's new comedy - as a saucy airplane pilot.

The funnyman recently began shooting scenes for upcoming movie "For a Good Time, Call...," and admits it was the first time he has had a chance to work with Miller, who he married last month.

He tells Esquire magazine, "She (Miller) wrote this movie called 'For a Good Time, Call...' about two girls who start a phone sex line, and I play one of the callers, an airplane pilot.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's '50/50' Head Shaving Scene Was Improvised

September 30th, 2011 2:00pm EDT
Movie 50 50
The posters for the new movie 50/50 already give away one of the major scenes. Joseph Gordon-Levitt shaves his head on camera. He plays a man coping with a cancer in which he has a 50 percent chance of surviving. Seth Rogen plays his supportive friend, and as the film’s producer joked about the iconic scene.

“We did it twice, six months apart,” Rogen said while doing press at the Toronto International Film Festival. “Yeah, we only could do that once and we improvised it for the most part, which could’ve been the stupidest thing anyone’s ever done because we really could only do it once.”

Q&A: Seth Rogen & Will Reiser Talk '50/50,' Head Shaving & Self Improvement

September 29th, 2011 2:00pm EDT
50 50
Hollywood doesn’t generally show young people dealing with cancer, especially not 20-somethings like Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). And if it’s going to explore such a serious topic, it’s almost certainly not going to make light of the situation like “50/50.”

Adam doesn’t drink, he doesn’t smoke, and he definitely doesn’t do drugs. It comes as a huge surprise then, when he is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and told he has a 50 percent chance of beating it. To brave the fight, Adam must lean on his best friend Kyle (Seth Rogen), who seems more interested in picking up women and ...

Seth Rogen in My Mothers Curse
Seth Rogen has had many comedy costars: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, James Franco. Next he has a true diva. Barbra Streisand plays his mother in My Mother’s Curse. Not many people get to call Babs mom.

“I didn’t call her that that often but it was great,” Rogen said while promoting this week’s new release 50/50 at the Toronto International Film Festival. “We actually worked very well together I think. It was a lot like Joe [Gordon-Levitt] in that she really was into being a comedy team. She really embraced the idea that it was a buddy comedy with a mother and son.”

Review: Equal Parts Storytelling And Acting Give Powerful '50/50' Real Resonance

September 26th, 2011 6:00pm EDT
50/50 photo
I recently spotted an ad for "50/50" which proudly proclaimed 'brought to you by the guys who did Superbad' – bad move. Not that there isn’t some Seth Rogen-esk humor within or some amusing levity brought to the morose subject of cancer, but the true impact behind the brilliance of "50/50" lies in its drama.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Adam, a young man who has a great life, good friends and a wonderful girlfriend. But at the early age of twenty-seven he finds his life altered virtually overnight when he is suddenly diagnosed with cancer. It’s proves to be a whole new world for Adam w...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies 50/50
After hearing all the hype about “Drive,” I couldn’t believe how much I hated it. It starts out promising: director Nicolas Winding Refn has some cool backseat perspectives of the driver (Ryan Gosling), and a sleek electronic soundtrack gives his shots of LA a seedy, neon glow.

However the directing quickly becomes pretentious, since Refn frequently reuses the same types of shots. Then the 80s style pop starts to feel COMPLETELY wrong, especially when you’re hit by unexpected, excessive violence on screen. These things would be more tolerable though, if the film effectively built drama...

The end of the year is always the most exciting time for true movie lovers as the studios release the films they hope to compete in the race for the many awards shows that will happen early next year. This September will have some decent films to choose from (namely "Contagion" and "Drive"), but with a greater amount of less-than-impressive fare than is normally seen. Either way, this first month in the awards season will have moviegoers flocking to the cinema nearly every weekend.

Shocking And Funny New '50/50' Movie Poster!

50/50 poster
With a poster that's as shocking and funny as the film itself, the new cancer themed dramatic comedy "50/50" has a new one sheet and it's a trip indeed. The movie, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a man who finds out he has cancer, is a clever mix of serious drama with bits of humor to add levity. (See Seth Rogen!) The flick also stars Anna Kendrick as Gordon-Levitt's counselor, Bryce Dallas Howard as his girlfriend and features a stand-out performance by the mighty Anjelica Huston as his over-protective mother. (Her best work since "The Grifters!") In any case the film does bring b...

Johnny Depp set sail again last week as Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” the fourth entry in the series. After viewing the movie, I can honestly say that it’s not the best in the franchise, but certainly not the worst either. While nothing can really top the first one in my mind, this one gets back to the spirit of the original.

Captain Jack runs into an old love interest, Angelica (Penelope Cruz), who convinces him to join her on a quest for the Fountain of Youth. Sparrow unwittingly climbs aboard the vessel of Angelica’s father, Blackbeard (Ian M...

Review: Seth Rogen Steals Scenes With Caustic Sarcasm In 'Paul'

March 18th, 2011 12:38pm EDT
Paul
If E.T. spent enough time on Earth adapting to our language and customs, he probably would have become a wisecracking rebel just like Paul, the title character in director Greg Mottola’s latest buddy comedy. This alien with attitude, voiced by the gravelly Seth Rogen, steals scenes with his caustic sarcasm, penchant for practical jokes, and his gross personal habits. Paul is neither naive nor innocent, but his maturity or lack thereof is what makes him so hilarious.

While Rogen is humorous in the film, it helps that Brits Simon Pegg and Nick Frost pen the screenplay for “Paul.” The two...

Kevin Smith Credits Seth Rogen For 'Re-Energizing' His Career

Director Kevin Smith credits actor Seth Rogen with helping to revitalize his career - by indulging in on-set dope-smoking sessions.

The moviemaker worked with the Knocked Up star in box office flop Zack and Miri Make a Porno, which only managed to double its $24 million budget when it opened in 2008.

However, Smith insists the experience was worth it for one reason - he smoked pot during filming. Rogen, who admits he is a regular cannabis user, smoked continuously on-set and urged Smith to join him in a bid to boost his creativity. And the director insists his new found hobby has "re-e...

Seth Rogen struggled to listen to "Green Hornet" radio clips from the 1930s as he prepared to star as the masked crimefighter on film because the programs were so slow and "outdated."

But he admits his patience was put to the test when listening to the Green Hornet radio show, which debuted in 1936.

Gondry's 3-D Visuals Spoiled By Dull Humor In 'The Green Hornet'

January 14th, 2011 9:41am EST
The Green Hornet
“The Green Hornet” blends the playful visual style of director Michel Gondry (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”), with the humor of writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Superbad”). You might think the combination of these creative forces would be a recipe for success however the end result is rather lackluster. There are some cool 3-D fight scenes in “The Green Hornet,” which are largely marred by unintelligent jokes.

Rogen and Goldberg adapt The Green Hornet superhero made popular by a 1960s television series and a 1930s radio series created by George W. Trendle. According to t...
